EKPELENI EKPEYE CONGRATULATES RT HON EDISON OGELENYE EHIE, ESQ., DSSRS ON HIS EMERGENCE AS SPEAKER, RIVERS STATE HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY….RALLIES SUPPORT FOR GOVERNOR SIMINALAYI FUBARA…WARNS TROUBLE SHOOTERS TO STAY CLEAR AND ALLOW PEACE RAIN IN RIVERS STATE
The Ekpeleni Ekpeye, Ekpeye foremost Socio – Economic, Political And Advocacy Group on behalf of the good people of Ekpeye Ethnic Nationality congratulates Rt Hon Edison Ehie, Esq, DSSRS on his emergence as the Speaker of the Rivers State House of Assembly.
Ekpeleni Ekpeye while condemning an attempt by some lawmakers to impeach the Rivers State Governor, Sir Siminalayi Fubara, GSSRS described such act as an attempt to plunge the state to another avoidable crisis owing to the fact that Rivers State is peaceful and the governor is just about six months in office with brilliant ideas put in place to transform the state.
It is however gratifying that the Eze Ugboji Ekpeye Logbo, a proud son of Ekpeye who represents the good people of Ahoada East Constituency 11 at the 10th Assembly, stood strong with his belief system to be on the side of justice, peace and good governance by supporting Governor Siminalayi Fubara in his quest to deliver democratic dividends and not to be distracted by agents of darkness whose stock in trade is to send the state back to square one.
While we condemn in strong terms the alleged direct shooting at the governor and Rt Hon Edison Ehie by some paid police officers while the duo tried to access the Rivers State Assembly Complex to ascertain the setting ablaze of the Assembly Chambers by suspected hoodlums.
Ekpeleni Ekpeye hereby, petitions the Inspector General of Police, IGP to commence an immediate investigation to unravel the circumstances that led to the seeming criminal behavior of the said police officers.
Ekpeleni Ekpeye warns that should anything happen to the Speaker of the Rivers State House of Assembly, Rt Hon Edison Ehie, Ekpeye people shall take action.
“We have no doubt that the election of the new Speaker of the Rivers Legislature, Rt Hon Edison Ehie by twenty six lawmakers will bring his wealth of experience to bear in not just presiding over a house that will make good laws for the benefits of Rivers people but, will support and protect the victory of Sir Siminalayi Fubara freely given to him by Rivers electorate to successfully deliver democratic dividends”.
Let it be known that Ekpeye Ethnic Nationality is solidly behind the Rivers State Governor, Sir Siminalayi Fubara and the new Speaker, Rt Hon Edison Ehie therefore, any attempt to cause disaffection in the system will be highly resisted.
Ekpeleni Ekpeye calls on the people of Ekpeye and indeed, Rivers State to rally round and support the leadership of both the Legislative and Executive arms of government for peace, orderliness and progress of the state.
Once again, congratulations to the New Speaker, Rt Hon Edison Ehie and we pray God to grant him wisdom and protection as he successfully pilot the affairs of the 10th Assembly to greater heights.
